My Computer Is Allergic To Chat Now >.< - March 3rd 2010, 07:18 PM

Well my dad just wiped the computer because it was playing up and had virus' and stuff.

Now everytime I try to enter the chat room my computer restarts itself. What's going on?

O_O
That really doesn't sound right.... It sounds like he's deleted a really important file, and you probably need to wipe and load windows again from the CD.

I think your dad deleted a pretty important file as said before. Try completely wiping, and reinstalling.

Everytime I try to download Java it restarts itself.

Also, McAfee anti virus appeared on the computer on its own even though me or my dad didn't install it.

If you have Norton, get rid of McAfee now, if you haven't already. McAfee and Norton like to fight with each other if they're on the same computer and it causes havoc. It's happened to me before.

It's okay I uninstalled it and I have Avast anyway so they weren't fighting. I was just wondering how it could have gotten there on it's own =/

Any two anti-virus programs will fight each other, which can really mess up your computer.

Also, it's extremely unlikely your Dad actually did anything wrong, most likely an important file just wasn't installed for whatever reason (corrupt data?).

As for how McAfee got there, if he used the disc you got with your computer, then it would have installed it with the operating system.
